Can You Get a Pet Monkey?

Hi guys… I’ve always been fascinated by monkeys and was wondering if it’s possible to have one as a pet. I’ve heard mixed things about legality, care requirements, and whether it’s ethical. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks…

Primates are not meant to be pets! Experts at Born Free and primatologists warn that these animals have intricate social needs, specific physical and behavioral requirements, and the ability to feel deep emotions. Keeping them as pets can cause them suffering.

Hey, that’s a poor idea. They live far longer than expected and are more intellectual than most animals.

Yeah right, monkeys should not be kept as pets! they belong to the wild and let them just stay there please.
